Commission - Toph by depingo Commission - Toph by depingo
This is a commission of grown-up Toph for ~gossymer , who was a joy to work with! During the working progress she gave me the most helpful constructive criticism : D

~gossymer also had some great concept ideas, for instance the staff Toph is carrying. It's a gift from Iroh (hence the dragon decorations), which she uses as a fake walking stick - pretending she really can't see ;)
During battle she metal-bends it into whatever shape she needs, because she's a badass earth/metalbender like that.

Great job, I like the the idea and what came out of it. Looks womanly, though I know that according to canon her looks and manner of dressing herself turned out much more agressive. This is what I'd like her to be from itme to time, though to my mind your variant is way too fragile. Toph really looks not that fragile in her teens. She's quite well built, down-to-earth, in a manner of speaking, girl. I doubt she'd be that fragile. ;)

you know what is really awesome about this piece, is that this is what she did, she left Metal city and the others and went to travel the world alone and reach enlightenment. Good one !

Like how she walks on her toes like a ballerina. Powerful, delicate legs.
Her radiant beauty surrounds the many shades of greens covering her.
Toph stands before you as the Greatest Earthbender of all times.
If Sokka turns her away... he is an idiot.

Hey, I'm glad you like it, but this is very old and I'd rather not have it posted around - especially since it's a commission.
Thanks for asking and understanding!

I love this Toph. I also really like the concept ideas. I wish there was a close up or something so I could actually see the dragon designs and her face more closely.

I am Kyuubi16. I really love the art you do and I was wondering if I could use your art as cover images for my stories? I'll credit you in the summary.

Also if you have to know anyone who wouldn't mind doing free requests I would like to know. I would to find someone who has a fondness for Naruto crossovers and wouldn't mind doing images based off scenes from my stories.

Also if you know anyone with Fanfiction could you please tell them to check out YourFanfiction, and maybe even post their fanfiction there/spread the word so the site gains more popularity.

I know this is asking a lot, but I'm hoping at least maybe one of these requests would be fulfilled.

Nope, sorry, I won't allow you to use any of my work.
No to the other requests as well - don't know anyone interested in that.
